Last time I posted, I mentioned it was a special birthday for Alina - she turned 1!
And, I also mentioned I was a tad late with her birthday card. Well, I finished it, and here it is......(drum roll please)
...and Janine, NO PEEKING!

I "christened" 2 new stamps - from Lili of the Valley (an English company) who does the cutest images. Both the image and the text are from there.
I "christened' the paper as well - a piece from Kaiser, the Magic Happens range
I 'christened" some Stampin Up cardstock - probably not even in the current range - orchid opulance (or is it lovely lilac??) Something I have not used, ever! The matching ink is one of those spots, and the ink has leaked and has covered the whole label, so I truely do not know the exact colour.
The rest of the stuff is Bazzil white cardstock for the base, and some silver paper I had left over from another project. Same with the flowers!

I haven't written in it yet - that is happening just before I pop it in the post to little Alina, along with her gift!

I love the way this card turned out - something I don't normally do, and just a lil bit fancy - with the glitter an all, but I like it!

Hope your week goes well...until next time


ps - I love the comments people leave - they bring a smile to my face! Thank you :)

So, again, it has been awhile since I posted here. I'm sorry
This is where I burst out in a Gary Glitter song - didya miss me, yeah, while I was away, didya hang my picture on the wall! lol

Anyway, last month Megan sent me out the kit with her wanting me to do 'off the page projects'. The pressure, the stress, the fun!
Soooooo, I made this:

and this:

and this:

and this as well:

The last one, I had help doing. P was watching me, and wanting to help. So I grabbed 'my' coloured pencils and asked her to colour in the paper which she did gladly. She did a good job too!

All the papers are from the MM range of papers - Just Chillin', and bazzill cardstock - which I absolutely love! Check out the newsletter from Megan - newletter as there are not just my projects, but projects from the other talented design team. Such a mix of talent and ideas......

I have had a couple of weeks off from scrapping, but am into it again. I have started a card for my friend Janine's little girl who turned 1 in February.  I'm slack, I know, but the thoughts are there - Happy Birthday Alina!
